Fedora 17 : postgresql-9.1.5-1.fc17 (2012-12165)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61672
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUpdate to PostgreSQL 9.1.5, for various fixes described at http://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.1/static/release-9-1-5.html including the fixes for CVE-2012-3488, CVE-2012-3489
Configure postmaster to create Unix-domain sockets in both /var/run/postgresql and /tmp; the former is now the default place for libpq to contact the postmaster. This works around problems with clients running in a PrivateTmp context.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected postgresql package.
